You might be thinking about how well your home meets your needs as you get older.  Perhaps you would benefit from some home adaptations or maybe you want somewhere that's easier and cheaper to run. Whether it's downsizing or looking for something that offers more support and care, there are many options for you to consider.

Making even small adaptations to your home can help you to live there independently for longer. You can get support to decide what you need and you might qualify for help with costs.

Keeping your home in good repair helps you stay safe and may reduce running costs. Make sure you’re carrying out essential checks and find out who is responsible for maintenance and repairs if you rent.

If you're thinking of moving, there are various options including housing that has been specially designed for older people, or moving in with family.

Moving home can be stressful and expensive but it could make your life easier. If you do decide to move, careful preparation can help everything go smoothly.

If you're considering a move to a care home, make sure you have as much information as possible about how to chose one, how to pay for it, and how to make the move as easy as possible.
